In the course of 2013, the Smart Factory was established at the HTZ Saarbrücken site. On this occasion, a fully automated process cycle was developed, which uses RFID technology and reflects a real value-added process.

In the following years, a seamless integration into the ERP system SAP with corresponding visualization via large LC displays was achieved through a cooperation with ORBIS AG. In the following passages, we'll introduce the individual parts of our Smart Factory.

acquisition and visualization

All automated booking processes, material flows and demand messages are automatically stored in the ERP system and visualized by OMPS.

stock removal

Inventory is automatically monitored by RFID technology. Automated bookings of goods are made in SAP ERP by OMPS.

materials transportation

Automated rebooking processes - even during material transport - ensure a permanent material flow control.

material provision

Using Auto-ID technology (RFID UHF), precise storage place-related data is recorded and stored in the ERP-System.

assembly and quality control

After quality control, assembled parts are recorded fully automatically in the ERP-System by RFID-order cards.

material transport and palletizing

By reading the RFID-tag, a fully automated material transport occurs. Palletizing is also processed fully automatically by machine-to-machine communication - fully in line with Industry 4.0.
